Quote:Kenny Dalglish refused to explain whether striker Fernando Torres would leave the club before the transfer window closes on Monday night.

The Reds rejected a £35m bid from Chelsea after a transfer request by the Spaniard was turned down on Friday.

"We've not brought anyone as a replacement for anyone else," Reds boss Dalglish revealed on Monday.

Meanwhile, BBC Sport understands that Liverpool have had a £30m bid rejected for Newcastle striker Andy Carroll.

The future of Torres remained uncertain with the transfer deadline ending at 2300 GMT on Monday, with BBC sports news correspondent Dan Roan reporting over the weekend that Liverpool would be willing to offload the 26-year-old for £50m to Chelsea.

An Anfield source also stated that the club could be open to a deal of £40m in cash plus Blues forward Nicolas Anelka.

My friend who supports Liverpool actually thinks this is a good deal, I say selling your best player and bringing in a experienced replacement for an vastly over-inflated price is crazy.
